Top Feed Injector Install
 
Would it be easier to install my injectors by removing the intake manifold first? Just asking because i am putting in spacers ne way so i would then do both at the same time. Lmk thanks.

Why are you doing spacers?

I mean i figure i would install the phenolic spacers since its not expensive and would be going in there anyway and help keep the temp down. Lmk what you think

The plastic manifold is enough to disburse heat. Spacers are more for the sti/ older wrx's since they use metal manifolds. It's up to you, other wise. Save the $60.

+1. Save your money. Maybe look into deleting the TGVs if anything if you are already going to take everyting apart.

To answer your Question, yes, go ahead and take the manifold off since you have a reason to do so anyway. It's not necessary to completely remove it for the injector install, but based on my experience, it was easier since the manifold was loose and able to be lifted.
